This project is based on the use of the most recent geomatics technologies and the development of geospatial methods to support the production of a flood risk portrait.
The main goal is to provide comprehensive knowledge with regards to buildings in flood-prone areas and to help delineate these zones more quickly and precisely in order to better support decision-making in all aspects of risk management (preparation, prevention, intervention and recovery).
More specifically, this project will provide a complete inventory of buildings vulnerable to the hazards of flooding as well as a more detailed structural and occupancy characterization of these buildings. This will contribute to a better estimate of the foreseeable impacts and damages, as well as the costs associated with potential future flooding episodes.
